Tamil Thalaivas stand at 11th spot with an 8-match winless streak at present. Patna Pirates, on the other hand, are at the bottom of the table with a six-match losing streak. Both teams will be hoping to regain their lost momentum from here on.
'Showman' Rahul Chaudhari scored a Super-10 last night which went in vain against Dabang Delhi K.C. He has 90 raid points in 14 matches in the season thus far. V Ajith Kumar has supported the Thalaivas' offence decently. Skipper Ajay Thakur will be hoping for a comeback as he went pointless last night.
'Record-breaker' Pardeep Narwal has the 3rd highest raid points of the season with 132 raid points in 13 matches. Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsoudlu will once again be the support raider to Pardeep. However, he hasn't played up to his reputation this season thus far. Monu could serve as the third raider for the team tonight.
Manjeet Chhillar has been the top scorer for Tamil Thalaivas' defence with 35 tackle points in 11 matches. Ran Singh and Mohit Chhillar will look to improve their game tonight. Ajeet will have to perform tonight to book his permanent place in the starting seven.
Jaideep has scored 31 tackle points in 13 matches for Patna Pirates. He could make a return to the playing seven tonight with Hadi Oshtorak in the right corner defence. Vikas Jaglan and Neeraj Kumar have been decent from the covers as they look to aid the tackles tonight.
Can Tamil Thalaivas avenge their loss against Patna Pirates tonight? Or will Patna Pirates start winning matches from here on?
